, the chief of the federal reserve, got more negative on the state of the u.s. economy. >> given that growth is projected to be not much above the rate needed to absorb new entrance into the labor force, the reduction in the unemployment rate seems likely to be frustratingly slow. >> so what's the solution? well, in note after note from wall street economists and traders today, i read something along the lines of this. bernanke will launch another round of easy money to help the economy. it will bring interest rates even lower. it's just a matter of time, he'll do it, he'll do it, don't worry. that's the kind of talk the addicts use. yearning for more of his powerful drug, which is essentially just cheap, easy money. so many were hoping for another shot of the goods today, but while the fed chairman painted a darker picture of the economy, he also made it clear he is not ready -- not ready to hit us with another round of easy money, at least not yet. >> we are looking for ways to address the weakness in the economy, should more action be needed. >> now ben bernanke also said, quote, congress

, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling for unity. what did you make of his comments? >> it's always a fine line because there are a lot of people who don't want to be hearing about politics, they don't want -- people want to be very careful about not exploiting a terrible tragedy like this. there is a pretty credible counterargument that says you don't turn it into a political fight where you're trying to get an advantage over your enemies and exploit it but i do think it's reasonable to have a national conversation about the context, about why these things happen, whether there are things we can do to prevent tragedies like this. if a plane crashes because you think the aircraft control system wasn't working, you would talk about how to reform it. but guns is such a volatile loaded subject, i think someone like obama and probably mitt romney are going to step back because they know that walking into that conversation immediately just turns into a distorted politicized -- >> mitt romney is expected to make remarks in the next few minutes. we'll bring

print and joins us now from dc. doug, you have said it is not the retailers or the consumers, but actually visa, mastercard and their banks that win out in this one. why is that? >> unfortunately, this agreement -- and i want to emphasize that it's not a done deal yet. this would allow visa and mastercard to keep fixing the fees, the banks not to compete and the fees to keep going up. we pay them now to the tune of $50 billion a year. and we just don't know it. unfortunately, that's going to continue if this gets pushed through. >> $50 billion a year. that is a number we don't hear very often. but the credit card companies agree to reduce the swipe fees for retailers for eight months. what else is included as part of this settlement? >> well, you have to read the fine print when you deal with credit card companies. and that's true here too. when you read the fine print, it's eye-opening. they're not going to reduce the fees even for the eight months. what they're going to do is give merchants the equivalent of that amount of cash and keep raising the fees. the cruel joke is b
